Read the following passage: When one is thinking about relocating cross-country, there are a few important points to consider. First of all, do some initial research to see if there are jobs in your industry in the location where you wish to move. ((To recruit out-of-state employees, jobs are posted online.)) You may want to do a keyword search for terms related to your desired industry and salary. Question: How would you rewrite the sentence in parentheses to be in active voice?
Employers post jobs online to recruit out-of-state employees. (Explanation: Combining any conjugation of the verb "to be", including is/are/were with a past participle, usually a verb ending in -ed, results in the passive voice. This often obscures the subject of the sentence and makes it unclear who is actually performing the action. Removing passive voice can make your sentences much more clear.)
Which of the following is the closest synonym of the word "salubrious"? A) Delicious B) Healthy C) Kingly D) Malicious
Answer: B. Salubrious refers to something that aids a person's health. One tactic to narrowing down your answers here would be to look through all of the possibilities and first see what you might be able to rule out. For example, three of the words have positive connotations, and only one has a negative connotation. From this, you may assume that the word is more likely to mean something positive. While this may not always be the case, it can be a useful trick if you have no idea where to start with a question! You will also benefit from knowing root words. This word is based on the latin root "saluber" which means "health" or "wholesome". From this, it should be easy to narrow the options down to the one most closely related to health.
Consider the following quotation from William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night": "Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” In your own words, offer an interpretation of this quotation within the context of the scene.
This is offered as advice to Malvolio from "Olivia" in a letter, which was actually sent as a prank by one of the other servants in the house. The letter emboldens Malvolio to try and pursue Olivia romantically through a series of bizarre outfit and behavior choices designed to make him look like a fool. The specific passage is telling Malvolio not to be afraid to pursue Olivia simply because he is not also of noble birth– that some men may be born to greatness because of their lineage, but others work hard for it, and even others stumble into greatness without intending to. The letter implies that Malvolio will be in this last group as Olivia has chosen him to be great by her side. However, the real intention of the letter is to attack Malvolio's self-importance and to show how his pride will become his downfall as he is so willing to believe this letter to genuinely be from his well-to-do employer.
